    Not many people outside of literary study or detective fiction fandom realize that the character of Sherlock Holmes was inspired by Poe's Dupin. Dupin was the brilliant and insightful idle noble who occasionally aided the authorities in particularly difficult cases. However, unlike Holmes, Dupin too...

    How could I not love this book? Shortly after reading Poe's complete works as a teenager, my family was transferred to Fort Monroe in southern Virginia. While waiting for permanent housing, I ended up staying in the house (and the very bedroom) that Poe had been in while he served on the base. Pulli...

    I'm not sure how screwed up Mr. Poe really was as I have read that a lot of the criticisms of him were exaggerated. But screwed up or not the man could write. Fears and tears all are here for the reader.I love Poe's writing. He's a voice that edges at times on madness (The Fall of the House of Usher...

    Poe has an impressive, comfortable grasp of vocabulary and sentence structure, but like King, one sentence often equates to one paragraph. The first story to catch my interest was 100 pages in-The Gold Bug, a brief tale of treasure hunting. This was soon followed by Marie Roget. For those of you who...

    This update has been a long time coming. I’m slowly working my way through Poe’s entire works, and I will post a separate review for each major short story as I go along. Many of them are so deep and profound that they each require their own review. I couldn’t possibly provide a fair ...

    Reading "The Complete Stories and Poems" will be a hell of a time-consuming project, but as I can feel honored to call Edgar Allan Poe one of my favorite authors, the only option to give his writing abilities justice is to read his stories and poems in their entirety. My intention is to update this ...

    Am fost în Ungaria medievală ("Metzengerstein"), pe lună ("Hans Phaall"), în Londra ("Regele ciumă"), Paris ("Crimele din Rue Morgue"), Norvegia ("O pogorâre în Maelstrom"), Italia ("Portretul oval") şi -în fine!- într-un ospiciu ("Sistemul doctorului Catran şi al pr...

    Exercises in Genre and StyleI was never exposed to Poe in my schooldays, but I later became aware of his reputation.I didn’t know anything about his writing, except that I expected it to be a kind of guilty pleasure.Apparently, I decided to address my ignorance in 1983, when I bought a second h...

Sections include: Tales of Mystery and Horror, Humor and Satire, Flights and Fantasies, The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym of Nantucket, and many poems in...
